ALA-APA Programs for the People at ALA Annual Conference

What Does Certification Have to Do With Me? Am I Missing Something?

Saturday, July 11, 9:15 – 10:15 am, Hyatt Regency McCormick Conf Ctr 21b

Voluntary certification through the Library Support Staff Certification Program (LSSCP) will redefine how you think about yourself by expanding your perspective and your skill sets beyond your immediate place in your library. The LSSCP program will address your current and future professional development needs and the service needs of your employers and communities by preparing you to better understand and participate in the broader issues that are affecting your work. This discussion will describe the program’s inspiration, development and progress. Throughout our conversation, you will be encouraged to begin thinking about whether this opportunity should be part of your professional goals.
